Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers Now Available For Nintendo Switch

When the original Street Fighter II game launched in the ’90s, it changed the face of fighting games forever, introducing some of the most iconic video game characters and special moves of all time. If you’re familiar with video games, you may have heard of Ryu, Ken or the legendary HADOKEN!

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, the first new iteration of Street Fighter II in nearly 10 years, is now available for the Nintendo Switch console. The fighting game features the full Street Fighter II roster, plus two new additions: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken.

With the power of Nintendo Switch, the new single- and multiplayer modes in Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers can be played anywhere! New and returning features in the game include the following:

  • Co-Op Battle: In this new mode, players can join forces in teams of two as they battle together against a computer-controlled opponent. Players share a health bar and can coordinate attacks to perform powerful combos.
  • “Way of the Hado”: In “Way of the Hado” mode, players can fight enemies in first-person using the Joy-Con controllers. Iconic special moves like the HADOKEN can be activated using the motion controls of the Joy-Con.
  • Two graphic modes: With the simple push of a button, players can change between the game’s classic pixel art and modern high-definition graphics.
  • Arcade Mode returns: The classic Arcade Mode returns in Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. After battling through all the computer-controlled characters in the game, players can view character-specific endings.
  • Color Editor: Customize characters and costume colors using this new mode. Players can now bring their favorite character into battle with more style and personality than ever before!
  • Art Gallery: In between exciting matches, players can check out the digital art gallery included in the game. With more than 1,500 illustrations created by talented artists over the past 30 years, the artbook features many never-before-published pieces from Street Fighter’s past.
  • Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is now available in stores as well as Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

  1. I can’t believe that there’s only 2 new fighters, and they’re something as stupid as Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. Did they run out of ideas? What about Sassy Chun-Li and Disgruntled Dhalsim? I probably would have bought this game if it had been cheaper. If only for the nostalgia.

      1. Violent Ken (Brainwashed Ken in Japan) first appeared in some SF Manga I believe and then the original Street Fighter The Animated Movie was his first on screen appearance.

        And SNK Vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos was the first time he appeared as a playable character.

      1. It may be redundant but it’s not pointless. The Switch is a new console and having a classic game like SF2 on it is pretty awesome imo. I do think it’s overpriced but oh well, it will get a price drop at some point.

      1. No, I’m talking *specifically* about this game. I want it, I just don’t want to drop 40 bucks on something that’s been released 40 times already, regardless of the new stuff which is of dubious quality from what I have heard.

      2. Ok ok that’s correct. A game re-re-re-re-released so many times it’s not a good idea.

        I love SF but it’s not my favorite CRAPCOM CAPCOM game, but is still a good game. I only played SFII so many years ago. Playing this SF is some sort new for me.

  2. I got the game, and even though it’s a remake, as many people have posted out, I’m really enjoying it. Brought it home and we split the joy cons off and within minutes we were giving each other shit and trash talking while we played. Brought back a lot of memories. I’m guessing that was Capcom’s idea with bringing this old rug out again, at least partially.
    Cheers!
